Welcome to SparkPeople, there is a wealth of information here to help you find a healthier path in life. I won't say it is easy but it is completely doable. Use the nutrition tracker and try to be really honest with yourself. It is a real eye opener for sure. I had no idea how many calories I was eating. Also, rely on SparkTeams, these are groups of members who share similar interests and issues. There is one for almost every interest, I would not be surprised at all if there was a Dr. Who group!

Good luck!

Hi CeElla,

Welcome to SP! Thanks for sharing a little bit about yourself. I am a cat lover as well. They just have such cool personalities.

This is a great community with everything you need to help you reach your goals. Members are really encouraging and supportive. Be sure to read articles, blogs, and be active here as that keep up the motivation and accountability. The Nutrition and Fitness trackers are so helpful. A lot of members also use the Spark Fitness videos.

Just take it one day / one step at a time. You can do it!
Best of luck to you!

Hello fellow sparky people! I'm CeElla, I'm 32, and I'm 339 lbs. I live in the beautiful state of Tennessee, and I am trying my hardest to improve in many ways. Mentally, physically, emotionally, financially. My family and friends who I consider family mean the world to me, and I want to be healthy enough to do things with them like Hike, go on a rollar coaster, walk around downtown without getting winded. I have a great many reasons to lose weight and keep it off. My highest weight was 355, size 28. I'm now in a 26, so that's something right? I love movies, music, art, and anything creative. Big nerd, Firefly, star trek, doctor who, are just three of my favorite things. I also love animals and have three kitties, Discovery who is 2 1/2 and weighs a mere 6 lbs, she's still as small as a 8 month old kitty! She's feisty and playful and loves to perch herself on my shoulder. I have Evie who is about 7 we think, and is...well, she's learning how to cat. She was a rescue from an abusive household that kept her locked in a closet all her life. And then there's my queen chloe. She's 16 and runs the house! Since we got discovery, she's begun playing again and it's so sweet to watch.

Well, I guess that's it for me. Say hi! Ask me a question! I love to chat

Don't Forget To Be Awesome! DFTBA!
